Erased by Jennifer Rush

Altered #2
"They thought they had escaped. They were wrong. 
     After fleeing the Branch with Sam, Cas, and Nick, Anna is learning how to survive in hiding, following Sam's rules: Don't draw attention to yourself. Always carry a weapon. Know your surroundings. Watch your back.
When memories from Anna's old life begin to resurface--and a figure from her childhood reappears--Anna's loyalties are tested. Is it a Branch set-up, or could it be the reunion Anna has hoped for? Ultimately, the answers hinge on one question: What was the real reason her memories were erased in the first place?"

In all honesty this book while it had more action in it, wasn't as interesting as the first. The story didn't flow as smoothly.

Finding out more about their pasts was a nice way to push some character development. I just didn't really like this book as much. I was worried that there'd be a "love triangle" between Sam, Nick, and Anna, but thankfully there wasn't. Nick became more like an older brother figure.

And Nick is still my favorite character in this book. I read this book in a day and I already forgot half of what happened. All I really remember is that Anna became rather ruthless and killed a lot of people, it also didn't really seem to bother her all that much. I don't know what training she went through, but for someone who thought she was just an average girl all her life started killing people you'd think it would effect her a little more than it did.

There's a third book, and I really don't know why. This book kind of wrapped things up so I am a little confused as to why there's a third book.

  1. I haven't read this book yet but I've heard decent things about it. Your review, however, has me second thinking it. I really like complex characters and it doesn't sound like these characters have too much depth. I do wonder why they made a seemingly average girl a killer who wasn't effected by it. I've read books like that and it's really, really frustrating. Like, WHY??? Looking forward to your next post, Marie :)
